We are CLiKAPAD; producers of a modern, intuitive Audience Response System that makes your business processes faster, easier and more accurate. Since our inception, our focus has been on providing the best possible experience for our customers through technical expertise, practical assistance and pure passion for our product.
The handsets and ppvote software that we use are our own designs, allowing us to provide detailed insight into how they can be used and enabling us to create customised systems for new applications. In fact, over the years, many of our new features have been developed specifically to answer the creative needs of our clients.
The CLiKAPAD Virtual keypad allows voting from anywhere in the world. It’s ideal for multi-location meetings, virtual events and as a method of including participants who are unable to attend a face-to-face meeting.
We strive to go the extra mile for every client, working in a close partnership to provide coaching and support to make sure you can confidently manage your system yourself. Alternatively, if it’s more convenient, we can work on-site to take care of any technical requirements on the day of your event.
Our goal is to make sure your presentation, conference or workshop runs smoothly from the start, and we work to get it absolutely right – on time, first time, every time.
Why choose CLiKAPAD?
We are immensely proud of the quality of our product. The handsets are carefully designed to offer maximum versatility and portability, so you can use them again and again in all kinds of situations. They work in perfect tandem with the ppvote software, which integrates with PowerPoint to become a tool that is practical and rewarding for multiple departments in a business.
Secondly, our directors also have extensive expertise in what we do and provide a service that is second to none. Lynne has previously worked with many types of Audience Response Systems and can provide technical support for an endless range of applications. Simon focuses on listening to what our clients need and writing new code to keep our software evolving with new demands and technology trends.
We will always provide the best possible customer support and are happy to explain how CLiKAPAD can overcome challenges when other options fall short. As part of that promise, we will also be upfront when it seems like our ARS won’t be the right fit.
The CLiKAPAD Story
Our company started in 1991, when co-founder Jeff Earl saw a keypad voting system at a conference for innovative leadership. Seeing the potential of a simple presentation tool that could satisfy both the data-driven and creative sides of a business, Jeff and his partner, Christine Eldred, set about working on the perfect combination of portable hardware and intuitive software.
While competitor keypads were quickly becoming clunky and outdated, Jeff prioritised developing lightweight keypads that would comfortably fit in the palm of a hand. At the same time, the team saw how existing software options were failing to keep up with client technology demands and decided to invest in developing their own, PowerPoint-compatible solution.
Initially trading as ppvote, our company quickly built an excellent reputation across multiple sectors, working with clients such as Barclays, JP Morgan, Johnson & Johnson, Akzo Nobel, KLM, Novo Nordisk and many more. Our combination of hardware and software was – and still is – used for all kinds of processes, from quality management, succession planning, staff surveys and training, in various industries.
In 2013, the company underwent a management buyout by the current directors, Lynne and Simon. They chose to rebrand the company under the name of the ‘Clikapad’ handsets designed by Jeff, and the company continues to answer the needs of clients all over the world.
